Big Picture Question: How Do We Know?…

Yesterday the news broke of Senate Intelligence Committee Vice-Chairman, Mark Warner, seeking covert contact with ‘Clinton-Steele Dossier’ originating entity Christopher Steele.

Within the March/April 2017 communication, the back-and-forth centered around Chris Steele wanting a written request signed by both the Vice-Chair (Warner) and the Senate Committee Chairman, Richard Burr.

Without that bi-partisan request, Steele was not willing to engage with Warner unilaterally.  If you consider the timing of the attempted communication (March ’17), and you overlay the expressed concerns therein; against the backdrop of the 2016 DC severe ideological effort the push for a special counsel probe based on false pretense against newly-elected President Trump; a picture emerges of Christopher Steele recognizing his endeavors within the enterprise carried considerable risk.

Vice-Chairman Warner didn’t want a ‘paper trail’ and transparently didn’t want the political opposition (republican members), to know of his political intent.  Therefore Warner never asked Chairman Burr for his signature upon the letter requested by Steele. Ultimately Mr. Steele was correct in his suspicions, and prudent in his risk avoidance.

All of that is true, however, very few have stopped to ask: how did we, the viewing public, discover the Warner messaging and communication story in the first place?

How did the story of the Warner text messaging get into the media bloodstream?   Who was the ‘entity’ who investigated, discovered, and eventually released the Warner messaging?

The answers to those questions are similar to the questions that have been demonstrably overlooked ever since early December when we discover the story of Peter Strzok, Lisa Page and Bruce Ohr.  Each of the aforementioned ‘small group’ officials was removed from responsibility, disciplined and currently remains in stasis.

Within the overwhelming deluge of information that flowed as a consequence no-one paused to ask: How did we, the viewing public, find out about them, all of them, and their activity?

The December 2017 Strzok, Page and Ohr revelations gave rise to massive downstream consequences:

♦FBI chief-legal-counsel James “Jim” Baker was reassigned; ♦FBI Deputy Director Andrew “Andy” McCabe was resigned; ♦DOJ Deputy Attorney Bruce Ohr was demoted again; ♦FBI Asst. Deputy Director and chief-of-staff Jim Rybicki quit; ♦Deputy Asst. Attorney General in charge of counterintelligence, David “Dave” Laufman quits;  ♦FBI Asst. Director Michael “Mike” Kortan, head of the FBI Public Affairs Office, resigns.

Questions:

How did we discover the original text messages?

  • How do we discover Page/Strzok changing the wording of the Clinton exoneration “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless”?
  • How do we discover Bruce Ohr being in contact with Fusion GPS; or working with Peter Strzok; or meeting with Christopher Steele?
  • How did we find out in December about Nellie Ohr, Bruce’s wife, working with Fusion GPS?
  • How do we find out about text messages for the “insurance policy”; or intentionally incomplete “FD-302’s”?

Most importantly – As the deluge of information now floods the geography around us, has anyone looked up to see who was the shadowy figure atop the damn who triggered the collapse?

Every current story is well down-stream from those initial releases of information into the public sunlight.  Not a single story of consequence is disconnected from the origin.  None of the FISA revelations, or anything else, would have happened without the initial December 2017 information release…

…And just like yesterday’s news about Vice-Chairman Mark Warner, no-one apparently knows where all this originating information came from.

Many vague and inferential references have been made toward the Department of Justice Office of Inspector General, and the investigative oversight of Michael Horowitz via his year-long DOJ investigation, as the impetus of the information flow.

I don’t disagree with that presentation a single bit.

It is virtually a guarantee that IG Horowitz and his team of investigators inside the apparatus are the ones who collected every bit of the evidence that has led to these and other revelations yet to come.

But that still doesn’t answer the question: How do WE find out about them?

The dutiful Michael Horowitz has a boss.

Michael Horowitz’ boss is most certainly in the loop.

His boss is:

Carry on…

      If I were a prosecutor harmed by an armed robbery suspect, would it be appropriate for me to prosecute that suspect?

      Remember that EVERYONE in the Trump campaign and transition team were under illegal surveillance. This would include Jeff Sessions.

      With that understanding, would it be appropriate for this prosecutor to prosecute the suspects?

Look at all the info being revealed over the last 3+ months that We the People would have never known about if Killary were elected Prez.

            With Killery as Prez, the MSM would be blasting every nite more half-truths and lies about Trump and his family. The weight of the Fed Gov’t legal machine (DOJ/FBI/IRS) and the Intel Community would be too much even for a multi-billionaire to withstand.

        @Bud Klatsch: I agree!
        It takes methodical, extensive and hard work to file as of yesterday 13,300 Sealed Indictments against all bad actors facing courts across this country as well as military tribunals although they are handled a bit differently.
        When reading the new media you can see indictments get unsealed and corrupted politicians are stepping down due to charges. Heck the old msn did not even report the raids/arrests once again in California a couple of weeks ago of 552 more individuals charged with child sex trafficking and pedophiles while 90 children were rescued from the clutches of these monsters.
        These FBI raids are all in sync with Trump-Sessions and have not stopped since January 2017. My guess is that to date the FBI snagged almost close to 8,000 of these monsters with hundreds of children rescued. I could be wrong and there are more. The msn will not and would not report on these raids. The msn also does not report on the group made up with retired spec ops soldiers and others that go after these monsters as well and rescuing children. That organization does it free of charge.
        So yes Session is a busy man and he has hired a number of investigators and attorneys to assist with the monumental task at hand.
        Sessions is the possum in public while he slays the dragon behind the scene.

      This is maddening to me that people don’t understand the nature of Jeff Sessions’ work. They think that getting out in front of microphones all the time and being a blowhard means something’s happening.

      Jeff sessions job is to keep information close to the vest. Putting these kinds of cases together is a very difficult endeavor. This is not like an armed robbery where you have video, fingerprints and DNA evidence. This is all paper, interviews, and getting people to flip. It involves a lot of hard, detailed, meticulous work and it takes a long time to put these cases together and put them together the right way.

      If Sessions wasn’t doing his job, I have no doubt in my mind that he wouldn’t be there anymore.

      Sessions on the FBI and its future, Feb 6, 2018, the day McCabe left –

      ““Well, I have believed it was important to have a fresh start at the FBI, and actually, it was in my letter to the president when I recommended Comey’s removal. I used the words, ‘fresh start,’ and the FBI director is Chris Wray, a very talented, smart, capable leader.

      “I think it will give them an opportunity to go straight to the American people and say, ‘we are gonna win your confidence,’ ” he said.

      “When asked if he was concerned that the FBI had become too politicized, Sessions said the agency needs to be careful.”

      “Well, I would just say it this way. The Department of Justice, which includes the FBI, we all, we tend to be defensive. At this point in time, I think we need to go the extra mile to make sure that everything we do is not political. Everything we do is based on law and facts. And, whether we like it or not, there’s been erosion some in the confidence of the American people at the FBI and Department of Justice,” he said.

      “And we need to earn that back, and because the heart and soul of the Department of Justice is very good,” he said

      On the subject of “How do we Know?” How do we know Steele got anything at all from the Russians? There isn’t a thing in his dossier that couldn’t have been conjured out of thin air by the DNC and their DOJ/FBI moles.
      $168,000 couldn’t buy a cup of coffee in the “bullet in the back of the head for traitors” Russian spy world. But it was enough for Steele to type up DNC trash as his own work.
      Had Hillary won, that was some quick pocket change, but since she lost I am certain Steele would like to return the money and go back to skulking around alleyways.

EACH Agency in the federal government has an IG.

          For 8 years the DOJ’s IG (Horowitz) had his “authority” stripped from him, by former Pres. Obama—as did ALL IGs in our federal government. It was not until Jeff Sessions became AG that ALL IGs were given back ALL the “authority” they once had before Obama’s presidency!

    My pipe dream:

    Mueller informs the press he is going to announce his indictments in two hours. The MSM cable news shows go wild with glee while hosts of the news programs literally dance jigs of elation on camera. The MSM announces to the news consumers that Trump is going to be indicted, dems win the midterms, and the eviction of Trump is well in hand.

    MSM reporters cause the press room to buzz with glee while saliva hits the floor from various reporter droolings. Mueller enters the room heading toward the podium. The mood in the room changes 180 degrees when Jeff Sessions and President Trump enter the room behind Mueller.

    Mueller, with Sessions and Trump standing behind him, announces Trumps exoneration in the Russia probe and then Mueller announces his indictments of the miscreants in the FBI spy scandal, since he was authorized by Rosenstein to take a wide berth in what Mueller investigated.. Then Sessions announces his indictments, including indictments of two former presidents, two former secretaries of state, two former attorney generals, and several reporters in the room.

    Now that Sessions is being rehabilitated I would like to bring up the case of Michael Flynn, who like Sessions was an early, vocal, influential, and loyal supporter of candidate Trump. We have been told that he was contacting foreign diplomats (including RUSSIANS!) during the transition, which was perfectly legal and appropriate, but that he somehow mislead VP Pence about his activities and had to be fired. I don’t believe it. We are told that he then stumbled into a perjury trap by lying to Special Council investigators about his perfectly legal activities. I don’t believe that either. We are told he then agreed to cooperate with the Special Council in exchange for a lighter sentence. I don’t believe that either.

    None of this makes sense, but thus far I have not been able to develop a cogent alternative theory. Did Michael Flynn go undercover? How would that help the White Hat team? Is there something significant that he could learn only from that vantage point. I open to suggestions.

          Mueller postponed Flynns sentencing around the time the Nunes memo came out, not a judge. But you are right that a few months back a judge did recuse himself from the Flynn case. Im guessing its because of the fact he is also a FISA judge and had a conflict of interest because of it. As for the delay, I think its because Mueller knows that any half sober defense attorney could get Flynns guilty verdict thrown out on appeal. You got to remember 2 FBI agents interviewed Flynn. One of them said Flynn was telling the truth and was not trying to lie. The other agent, Peter Strzok, said Flynn was misleading and good ol Andy “First we f*ck Flynn, then we f*ck Trump” McCabe agreed with Strzok. SHOCKER!! McCabe hated Flynn because Flynn backed up a woman that accused McCabe of misconduct and McCabe had it out for him ever since. So Mueller really had no option but to delay the sentencing. Part of me thinks Mueller is either waiting for the IG report or he knows whats in it and that it exposes the corruption of the people who interviewed and went after Flynn. If thats the case and the IG report is as bad as it looks to be I think there is a good chance Flynn gets his charges dropped.

      Watch very carefully the name Rudolph Contreas, he’s the judge who just recused himself from sentencing Gen. Michael Flynn . Why? It was a cut and dried case Mueller reduced the charges so all judge had to do was basically accept already agreed upon terms. He recused because it will very soon come out HE WAS THE FISA JUDGE who signed off on the warrant to allow the spying. Fisa judges are posted ahead of the day they serve , because it’s a 24 on call term. The FBI intentionally waited until he was judge of the day. They went Judge shopping. Why? Because this judge was appointed by Slick Willie Clinton. If some honest sharp person would do some checking they could tie judge, judges family wife ,daughter to Clinton foundation, and ,and. Start watching. Grassley and Miss Lindsay Graham have already seen all 4 Fisa warrant applications and all supporting documents ( which would include the name of the judge who signed off and who signed the application from doj or FBI). It will show all 4 times they went in for re authorization of warrant. Any guess who signed each time? That’s why they are doing the criminal referral directly to Sessions. Remember inspector general is semi independent but works under Sessions. Wray said he removed McCabe after he got details of upcoming IG report. The IG s office had the texts when the FBI said they were lots. Issue is how bright aggressive and honest is newFBI director Christopher Wray?

      If the supporting documents for fisa warrants are made public all hell will break lose.
      Rep. Adam Schitz who wrote the dem memo is crooked . Nothing is stopping him from going before Congress and reading the entire memo into the congressional record. He could do it today by law. Once it was approved by the intelligence committee and it was, he could have run not walked ,to read it publically into the records with no redactions. He’s a creep . He put highly classified info in it intentionally, to make it look like Trump was political, when it’s actually him. We need to demand everywhere we could that he reads it now publicly. Watch how he weasels out. He wouldn’t dare want to be responsible for reading the confidential info.

    Sorry, Sundance, but this article is just wishful thinking, in my humble opinion. Sessions recused himself from all matters pertaining to the campaigns. That includes the FISA scandal, Dossier etc.

    As you know, Congress and the White House officially communicate ONLY with Rod Rosenstein. Because once again, Jeff Sessions recused himself. Sessions is not even being briefed. It would be unethical for him to secretly oversee anything he publicly would not. Are you suggesting he is no better than Obama?

    Everything is addressed to Rosenstein and every response is signed by Rosenstein. Risenstein is in charge, as ordered by Sessions.

    And no, I seriously doubt that Sessions would leak classified material to Fox News or anyone else. No friggin way. Leaking classified material is a crime, and if it becomes known that he is a leaker, after creating a special unit to combat leaking, that would be the biggest bombshell which would lead to Trump JUSTIFIABLY firing him.

    We “know” all the stuff we “know” because of tireless work of many patriots, including yourself, and because President Trump has these people’s back. A lot is discovered because it is much harder to cover up now. Many roadblocks are removed (Perhaps Sessions helped but we are well aware that his department stonewalled Congress and Judicial Watch for a year, and is still stonewalling — FACT.)

    If I somehow misunderstood your point, I apologize. But I really fail to see how Sessions can be credited for anything here.

      Summer, I am seriously doubting your understanding of the Constitutional framework of our government and how the scope of a recusal works.

      Jeff Sessions is the AG of the DoJ. He recused himself from matters relating to the Trump Campaign and Russia.

      He did not abdicate his role of head of the DoJ (over the FBI) on ALL OTHER MATTERS. He is still “the big boss” of both, and except for “Russia Russia Russia” thing, he is still responsible for everyone who works for him, and what they are doing, and what they are Investigating, and such. He has a HUGE Department to run and oversee.

      While he recused himself from the Russia stuff, he can still read reports, and decide if various investigations should go forward. He still determines the amount of resources to allocate to each effort, and has the final decision on prosecute or don’t pursue for each case.

      W.R.T. the IG Horowitz investigation, under Obama, Deputy AG Sally Yates wrote a lengthy (50+ page) brief on why IG Horowitz could not oversee the National Security Division (NSD) of the DoJ. [That is where the Obama DoJ was developing the FISA Warrants to allow “about searches” on Trump Associates, during and after the election.]

      President Trump (rightfully) Fired Acting AG Sally Yates for not representing the POTUS in front of the Supremes. He got Jeff Sessions appointed AG. When IG Horowitz asked AG Sessions about overseeing the DoJ including the NSD, AG Sessions said, “Of Course!” And then the shit started to roll downhill into the Nunez 4-page memo and all of the subsequent memos.

      Et cetera, et cetera, and don’t you even read the news? Or are you a Troll, who’s primary language is Trollish, and relies on the Google Translate App for Trollish English which is not doing well? Maybe you should switch to the Apple Siri translator that does a much better Trollish English translation, from what I’ve read.

      Seriously, the job of the AG is HUGE! The “Russia Russia Russia” probe under Special School Counselor Robber MuleEar is a minuscule slice of the DoJ, only it seems bigger because the LibTard MSM keeps pounding it into the front of newscasts.

        Newt Love, I am seriously doubting your understanding of “how the scope of refusal works.” Moreover, I am seriously doubting your understanding of the concept called “logical fallacy.” Did I claim that Jeff Sessions does not do his job, aka “asleep at the wheel”? No. Did I suggest that the AG job is simple or there is nothing else to do except Muh Russia? No. Strawman. The topic is not his multiple duties or how well he performs. The topic is “how we discovered all this information.” Re-read Sundance’s post please. The topic: speculation on the AG Sessions’ POSSIBLE role in the deluge of information we are experiencing. Got it?

        Here is Jeff Sessions statement:

        https://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/attorney-general-sessions-statement-recusal

        “I have decided to recuse myself from any existing or future investigations of any matters related in any way to the campaigns for the President of the United States.”

        ANY MATTERS RELATED IN ANY WAY.

        Do you think Dossier is unrelated? Do you think the FISA based on the Dossier is unrelated? Do you think the Nunes Memo is unrelated? Do you think Warner’s contact with Steele via Russians is unrelated? If the answer is yes, please elaborate. I am sure it will be interesting to hear your arguments.

        But if you agree that these things are related to the campaigns, then perhaps you would consider that AG Sessions cannot supervise any investigation into any of these things. Moreover, it was reported that he is not being briefed on the investigation. Does he read the reports? I don’t know. And neither do you. Does he privately discuss matters with the Congressmen and the media? Most probably not. And he should not. HE RECUSED.

        Therefore, any information LEGALLY disclosed and made available comes from someone other than Sessions. Any firings/demotions/resignations in connection with the revealed corruption related to this particular investigation originate from someone other than Sessions. That is not to say he is not consulted.
        And most importantly, there is zero chance that any confidential info (such as Warner and Steele) would be leaked (disclosed ILLEGALLY) to Fox by Sessions or with his approval. I am sure his every step is scrutinized. So, as Obama used to say, someone else made that happen.

        So, while I agree that Sessions probably played a big role in the process of opening the windows and letting the sunlight into the dark recesses of his Swampy Department, he is not the one who is uncovering all this and letting us “know.” The IG investigation started during Obama’s term, Sessions has nothing to do with it. Nunes and Goodlatte and Grassley were stonewalled and had to threaten the DoJ with holding them in contempt in order to get the requested documents for their Memos. Judicial Watch keeps on suing DoJ. And winning. Investigative journalists (the real ones) uncover stuff. We should thank these patriots. That’s how we “know.” Because of them.

        And I am still waiting for at least one indictment.

    First, THANK YOU SUNDANCE for shining daylight on so many nefarious people and their activities!

    Now….
    It bubbles up in my memory, the Anthrax panic and investigation, and the many leaks (In huge headlines) that pointed to Mr. Steven Hatfill as the bad guy. Highly publicized FBI raids (on Hatfill’s HOUSE!…. same technique as used on Mr. Manafort ) and a media feeding frenzy followed. Only trouble was, Hatfill WASN’T the bad guy. When all the smoke had cleared and the dust had settled, it was someone else. But it took Mr. Hatfill a couple of years of enduring a government and media attack- labeling him a pariah and costing him his career- before he was able to get it acknowledged (in small print) that he was innocent.
    My understanding is that the person behind the ‘leaks’, the person who caused the media frenzy was……. our esteemed FBI guru, Mr. Mueller.
    Just seeing some similar techniques being used today.

    Hey, I’m just a regular guy trying to keep up with what is happening. Anyone with any better information ….. please chip in!

        For six years, the FBI focused its investigation on Steven Hatfill. In 2008, authorities exonerated him.
        In 2006 the FBI started investigating Bruce Ivins, like Hatfill using circumstantial evidence.
        Bruce Ivins is the one who commited suicide in July 2008 of an overdose of Tylenol/codeine.
        After Hatfill was exonerated in March, The FBI came after Ivins hard. It affected his personal life, job, and mental stability.
        No formal charges were ever actually filed against him for the crime, and no direct evidence of his involvement has been uncovered

    Which leads us to the question …..Why is AG Jeff Sessions waiting…waiting …waiting to prosecute . The AG Jeff Sessions has all the evidence he needs to prosecute those involved in an attempted coup d’eta of a duly elected sitting president . As well as all the crimes of the Obama administration . So what is he waiting FOR ?

    President Trump put pressure on CONgress to extend authority to his cabinet to clean up the DEEP STATE . As more information slowly comes out to RED PILL more and more Americans the pressure on CONgress UNIPARTY will grow to do as our president asked .

    “Who’s got the Monkey ” is how Trump manages a massive conglomerate by delegating in his private business. Same thing applies here !

    ” I call on Congress to empower every Cabinet secretary with the authority to reward good workers and to remove federal employees who undermine the public trust or fail the American People ”

    ANSWER ….The political class and their subordinate federal agencies are levels 4 & 5 of the modern feudal system . President Trump and AG Sessions are going for the top 3 tiers as well !! These are the GLOBAL ELITE HUMAN FARMERS That Orwell warned us of in his novels .

    http://www.amendmentgazette.com/2013/08/02/feudalism-then-and-now/

    https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/961029128752267264.html

    At the top are the owners of the NOT federal and NO reserve. A privately owned banking Oligarch that controls our money . They get paid when you spend or make a $1 . They steal your wealth when you attempt to save a dollar by devaluing the currency .

    http://www.apfn.net/Doc-100_bankruptcy27.htm

    “The high office of the President has been used to foment a plot to destroy
    the Americans freedom and before I leave office I must inform the Citizen of
    his plight.”
    PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY(10 days before he was murdered)

    PRAY FOR OUR PRESIDENT , HIS FAMILY AND ALL THE WHITE HATS DAILY !!

    IN the second tier are member banks and their ” elite” ownership class .

    The third tier is the CHAMBER OF COMMERCE FASCIST multinational corporations who benefit the most from ” TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS ARE AT STAKE ”

    One clue to that is VANGUARD ‘s CEO stepping down . The EO from 12/21/2017 has CEO’S across the multinational spectrum stepping down , taking lesser positions and some have been already arrested for human rights violations and sexual harassment .

    The short of this is the situation at levels 4 & 5 is already in hand . AG Sessions and OIG Michael Horowitz is WAITING WAITING WAITING for THE STING at the top !!

    What we are seeing from the emerging media and some from FOX is level 4 & 5 . Obama and Hillary are merely puppets of the upper levels .

    Vanguard is the wealth management fund that is a large holder of the DEEP STATE and MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX . As well as Treasury Bonds , muni -bonds , and pension fund management . THICK AS THIEVES with the SHADOW GOVERNMENT.

    THIS IS THE BIG PICTURE !! Trump and his WHITE HATS are draining the SWAMP all the way not just at levels 4&5 in DC

    TWO things not to forget …THE SAFE ZONES in Syria and Yemen . A great place to DEPORT refuJIHAD !! back home where they belong !!

After all, in his remarks where he discussed his departure, he indicated that he was looking forward to getting back into his first love, which was working with the law. He may or may not have had his hands tied somewhat within the confines of his role as Congressman, but perhaps as a Deputy Attorney General (let’s just say), the gloves will truly come off. Hmmmm… Just wondering. Would love to get everyone’s feedback, especially Sundance’s (although I know he’s a busy, busy man!).

    My opinion is the President can fire at will all appointed people and more if he so desires. So if he is good with these people so am I. Some might be blackhats but he will know things I do not know and I trust him. Below is a read on the way I think it works. It is a copy and paste not sure who has written it.
    The President can hire people to serve in federal agencies, though clearly staffing of those agencies is delegated to managers at all levels, and is done in accordance with federal employment law.
    The President must nominate and Congress must approve positions that have been created by Congress, such as the secretaries of various departments, etc. The President has the ability to fire those secretaries at will and any other federal employees at will to the extent that it doesn’t contravene a contract or federal employment law.
    The reason for nominating certain positions is explicit in the Constitution and there’s some interesting case law about why the President can fire the same people without Congress’ consent.
    I’d suggest the book America’s Unwritten Constitution by Akhil Amar for more detail on that.

    But it did not happen. It was clear then that the ‘Russia Collusion’ story was a complete fabrication, but Mr Sessions apparently decided to just lay low and let all the sordid details play out. Was he responsible for us learning of them, as Sundance suggests? I don’t know, but surely the time is now coming when he must emerge from the insane recusal cocoon and start taking action. It is time for grand juries, and maybe a public Congressional Select Committee to investigate the Conspiracy to Stop Donald Trump, a conspiracy that reached the highest levels of the Obama Administration. If AG Sessions is really a butterfly and not a dud of a larva, it is time to spread his wings.
